Well i know you all love fishin but sometimes with the rods i see people usin im surprised they can even tell when a fish is on one of them bad boys. lol for instance my cousin just got a 14ft big cat rod from some company whose name i cant recall. but he caught a 4ft gar on it and the thing barely bent!! lol...idk i just think that sometimes people use WAY too much rod for the fish they're catching....i use 7 ft rods and i can feel the fight way better than i could with a 10 ft rod....why the huge surf rods for 10lb fish???
